Our webserver works on a oracle 8.1.7 database 
trought the oci8 php extension.

We observe (with apache server-status module) 
that the apache process isn't stable 
and reboots frequently (up to 50times/day).

Each crash causes a Dr. Watson dump (Exception 
number: c0000005 - access violation)

We can reproduce the crash on calling a simple 
OCILogon function with 5 concurrent users.

Tested Issues:
- Upgading the oracle client from 8.1.7 to 9.2.0 
  and 10.1.0 we have longer uptime but crashes anyway.
- Using TNS address string in OCILogon (like 
  BUG# 26558 suggestion) makes less core dumps.
- We could not reproduce the error with PHP/Linux 
  using the same hardware. 

We currently wonder if this could be an issue
with PHP/Oracle running on a Multiprocessor 
Windows server?

Compaq Proliant DL360 (Dual Processor);
Windows 2000 server SP 4, 
Apache 1.3.29,
PHP 4.3.6 (apache module)
Oracle client 10.0

Reproduce code:

  if ($c=OCILogon("user", "pass", "host")){
    print "OCILogon success";

  } else {
    print "OCILogon failed";

Get the Dr.Watson dump file at the following address:

(File size: 22 KB "zipped"; 141 KB "unzipped")

I have reproduced this problem with oracle10g / php 4.7 / apache 2.0 - on a windows xp box with an intel Hyperthreading CPU ("multiprocessor" system too). 
Using 10 concurrent users doing repeatedly logon, after 8 minutes I do get the address violation, the stack trace points to oracle10.dll.

I repeated the test above while turing *off* Hyperthreading (which makes it a singleprocessor system) and the problem is gone!

Marking as "bogus" as it's an exact duplicate of #28403.

Hi derick-at-php-dot-net,

thank you for answer.
We agree with the decision to link it to bug #28403, 
but this one has status 'suspended' since july, 1st.

Is this correct or is it possible to change status to 'open' ?

Hi derick,
pls answer previous comment. 


-> setting bug to "open".
 [2004-07-08 08:55 UTC]
That is correct, it is set to suspended.
